Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Wilbert Kenneth (Kenny) Smalls,74, passed away suddenly on Wednesday January 4, 2023. He was a resident of Kingston, PA.

He was predeceased by his parents, Wilbert and Ruth (Fields) Smalls, his older sister Karin Garner and younger sister Karesse Doss.

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, he was born on June 21, 1948. Although lovingly remembered as Kenny, he was proud to be named after his father. After graduating from McKees Rocks High School in 1966, he enlisted in the army and served in the Vietnam war followed by the time as a reservist from which he was honorably discharged. He was proud to serve his country and his time in the military forever changed him. Upon returning, he worked at various jobs including the post office and manufacturing until his health declined. He was an active church member and enjoyed his new adventure with the Masons.

Anyone that met Kenny knew immediately that he was a talker! He had a happy laugh, was a jokester, and a genuinely good guy who will be remembered by his family as the life of the party. He was willing to throw down his cane to dance and most especially at his beloved family reunions. The laughter that Kenny brought with his presence will remain.

He leaves to honor his memory, his sister Kimberly Smalls, brother Michael, nieces Evita, Cortney, Kami, Brittny, Terrika and Kierney, fifteen grand nieces and nephews and a large extended family and friends.
Interment will be on Friday, February 3,2023 at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery in Annville, PA at 11:30am sharp followed by Celebration of Life Ceremony held at River Grille, Wilkes-Barre, PA at 3pm for family and friends.

Arrangements are under the care of the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge. Please visit the funeral home’s website to leave a condolence.
